We want to promote the benefits of physical activity and ensure that children are aware of the link between physical activity, healthy eating, a healthy mind and a healthy lifestyle. We are sensitive to cultural issues that may influence children’s participation and that of their families.
We base our formal PE lessons on the National Curriculum programmes of study. We offer regular timetabled activities such as rugby, hockey, football, netball, cricket, athletics, gymnastics, dance and swimming. Alongside these will be opportunities such as surfing and sailing, which will build on our existing strong links with Ramsgate Yacht Club and Joss Bay Surf School.
We will provide all Key Stage 1 and 2 children with more than the expected two hours per week of physical education, with further opportunities through the co-curriculum and our extended curriculum by offering physical activity sessions before or after school. These will also be designed so that parents and other community members will be able to participate in or lead activities. These sessions will include dance, a wide range of exercise classes, games, walking, cycling, skipping and many more activities that can be continued outside of school.
